Question about Toshiba Satellite 1400-S151 Notebook
I have tried to upgrade my Satellite 1400 from the original 128mb ram to 1gb with 2x512mb chips. The chips are identical IBM PC133 3.3v SO-DIMM modules brand new in perfect condition. I've tried reseating them and nothing seems to work. I've tried with only one module at a time but still nothing. When I turn the computer on I hear one long beep and then two short beeps with one module and with both I hear one long, two short, one long and one short beep. When I put the 128mb module back in, it boots fine. All guides I have read, even from Toshiba, say that the maximum ram the system can handle is 1gb in the form of 2x512mb modules in each slot.
Any help appreciated.
Hi this problem has arisen on both desktops as well as laptops, the reason for it is quite simple. a lot of the RAM available on the market now is HIGH DENSITY RAM and unless your satellite is specificaly designed to run high density RAM it will not recognize it.
You will find all the major RAM brands are low density and will work fine. A brand like Kingston is an ideal option.
